ABOUT DUTCH RIDGE CONSULTING GROUP
What’s In A Name?
Founder, CEO, and President, Doug Ingros, grew up as a Navy brat before serving in the Army for twenty-six years. While attending high school in Beaver, Pennsylvania, he and his friends used to race along Dutch Ridge Road, or ‘The Ridge’ as it was affectionately called, for some weekend fun.
Many women and men who serve our country in a variety of uniforms come from similar communities. Our name is a tribute to all the veterans who come from the boroughs, townships, and cities across the US. We recognize all the sons and daughters who so gallantly served in the armed forces, local and federal law enforcement, and first responders. All of them have their own Dutch Ridge Road in their past, inspiring them to give back.
Our leadership (corporate) team averages over ten years of experience in running and operating small businesses. We understand the value proposition and the delivery that must go into it. We have been on both sides of the fence. Our commitment is to support the mission first while always operating at a legal and regulatory-compliant level. Integrity is everything!
Many members of our team serve second careers in the business community providing solutions to commercial and federal customers. They come from careers as senior military officers, FBI agents, senior IT experts, and intelligence agency personnel with functional experience in law enforcement, criminal investigations, anti-terrorism, counterterrorism, force protection, fraud investigations, and security backgrounds.
Deliver proven, highly capable, and dedicated industry professionals that offer solutions to commercial and government clients with focus on solving problems. With an ever-increasing threat to IT infrastructure, outside intrusion, physical operating environments, and personnel security risks—we apply mission-focused experts with the proper career experience in a no-nonsense approach that addresses our client’s needs.
Integrity matters. Our employees are our calling card. Our primary source for hiring and staffing is from the community of professionals that have served in our nation in positions of trust. Guided by an inherent belief in ethical conduct, we will continuously strive to do what is required and sustain our standing within our community. We do what we say we will do—period.
